Hoda Kotb celebrated her 47th birthday on the Today show this morning with Kathie Lee Gifford, but was also joined by very special surprise guest — her boyfriend, Jay! Making his national television debut, Jay surprised Hoda with a kiss and flowers on the show.
Hoda boyfriend Jay (attorney and single dad) made his first appearance on the show to help celebrate Hoda’s 47th birthday this morning.
They’ve been keeping their relationship hidden for months, but now it’s public!
“We also have another little present for you today,” Kathie Lee told Hoda on Today. “For the first time in national television in the flesh. Jay is here. Jay is here for you, Hoda woman.”
Out walked Jay and gave Hoda a big kiss on camera and wished her a Happy Birthday.
“Jay, how happy are you on this 47th birthday of Hoda’s?” Kathie Lee asked.
“Pretty happy, Jay said. “Looking forward to 47 more.”
“Of course, I’ll be old and drooling in a wheelchair,” he joked.
